Handmade bunting, loads of fabric streamers, a first dance right after the tearful ceremony, and some out-of-this-planet scenery make this rustic and rainy wedding a sight to see. You'll definitely want to see the little note the bride left for the groom before the ceremony, too. Oh, and we learned that when you don't have an umbrella, a unicorn mask works in a pinch.

Gothic details, a shimmery black dress, lots of skulls, and a sweet little backyard tent for all the loved ones. There was a lot of DIY, and with it, some sage words of advice about self-catering. But our favorite part has to be the story of the father/daughter dance surprise. Get your hanky!
This pair wanted a planned elopement in the mountains followed by a second ceremony and barn party the weekend after! It's the best of both worlds. It may have been August in Kentucky (meaning HOT), but everyone pulled up a box fan and had a steamy, dreamy, barefooted good time.
After three years of engagement, we finally started to figure out what we wanted to do for our wedding. Throw a big party? Throw a small party? Run away? Ugh, they all sounded hard and not right. I wanted our wedding to be special for us, and not be bogged down with anxiety, and feeling like no one was as happy as I wanted them to be. The one thing that kept sticking was pseudo eloping, and it was perfect.
Four days of wedding fun is FUN. Four days of wedding fun is also PLANNING. This couple shared the duties for feeding, sheltering, and entertaining a lot of people, and it turned out to be a kick-ass time. They canoed in and out of the ceremony, shared amazing Washington views with friends and family, and even taught everyone to contra dance. Re-live your camp days with these cuties.
Camels and zebras and children — oh my! There's no better recipe for Southern fun than animals, kids, and balloons. Oh, and tons of pies WITH handmade recipe book favors. And a lollipop miracle at the ceremony. And a super sweet moment with the bride's father during their father/daughter dance. And so much more. SO MUCH!
Some of you are already aware of Katy Perry, the glitter-sneezing, fire-shooting, lemonade-peeing unicorn, and if you're not, get ready to lose your shit. This is the full story of the country fair-themed event with cotton candy bouquets, stilt-walking lawn gamers, fire dancers, LED necklaces, kazoos, and lots and lots of gingham!
Nicole and Melissa's Washington wedding at Nature's Connection Place is one for the books! For starters, they crafted "gride" and "broom" signs for their chairs and were wed by a bearded be-glittered member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who officiated while rocking a massive rainbow sequined headdress. There were hints of purple in everything from the couple's matching boutonnieres to the violets cascading down the side of their wedding cake.
We're in the mood to bring some rainbows, glitter, and colorful details into your life. It's a prismatic rainbow and colorful wedding theme week! Today we've got a subtle and glorious rainbow dress, a huge circular barn, and a couple who rocks it out with their band. And don't forget to spot Liberace!
